We have derived the galaxy luminosity function (GLF) in the cluster of galaxies Abell 496 from a wide field image in the I  band. A single Schechter function reproduces quite well the GLF in the 17 $\leq I_{{\rm AB}} \leq$ 22 ($-19.5\leq M_{\rm I} \leq -14.5$) magnitude interval, and the power law index of this function is found to be somewhat steeper in the outer regions than in the inner regions. This result agrees with the idea that faint galaxies are more abundant in the outer regions of… Expand
